Style Guide

This style guide provides a reference for available visual elements and widgets that can be used when creating pages on the Louisville Tourism website.

The Title & Introduction widget is a critical page component. Introductory copy is recommended on all pages, as this content will be displayed when pages are cross-promoted throughout the website using related content widgets. The Title & Introduction widget also allows you to control social sharing on a page, which is displayed to the left of the page title. If desired, social sharing can be hidden by clicking the radial button in the widget.

If desired, a hero image can be added above the Title & Introduction widget (please scroll down for details on hero image usage).

The Text Editor widget allows for long-form content to be included on the page. Use heading formatting to include stylized headings that separate content:

H2 Heading

H3 Heading

H4 Heading

H5 Heading

Normal readable text

Blockquotes can be used to feature direct quotes from individuals, or to offset content snippets in a visual way. Citation Optional
Image (Asset): Full Layout. Caption and link are optional.
Image (Asset): Center Layout. Caption and link are optional.

Media Widgets

Use widgets in the Media tab to feature content from third-party image and video providers.

Embed Code: Use the Embed Code widget to easily include third-party code.
Crowdriff Gallery: Use to include related Crowdriff content on the page.

Page Widgets

Use tools in the Widgets tab to format content and feature related content from other areas of the website.

Accordion Widget: When to Use It

The accordion widget should be used when pages feature extremely long content that needs to be condensed.

Accordion Widget: Why Use It?

Accordions are a helpful way to improve usability on a very long, text-heavy page. FAQ pages are a good example of when the accordion widget is particularly helpful.

Accordion Widget: How to Use It

Create a new "Content Section" for each topic in the accordion. The "Title" introduces the visitor to the information included in the section, while "Content" includes the long-form copy that relates to the individual section topic.
